YouTube Execs Open Up About Logan Paul's Future on Site

South Korean Unification Minister Cho Myoung-gyon right shakes hands with the head of North Korean delegation Ri Son Gwon during their meeting at the Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone in Paju South Ko

A petition on Change.org demanded that Paul's YouTube channel be deleted. Paul's controversial videos single-handedly exposed the ugly truth behind YouTube's recent crisis - its unwillingness to be perceived and act as a responsible media platform and face the regulations and scrutiny that comes along with it. In 2017, the second season of "Scare PewDiePie", featuring creator Felix Kjellberg, AKA PewDiePie, was canceled after controversy arose surrounding anti-Semetic videos posted the creator (once the most-subscribed YouTuber on the planet).

"It's taken us a long time to respond, but we've been listening to everything you've been saying".

It's time that YouTube and other social networking services got serious about establishing real, identifiable and enforceable rules governing their services in such a manner that reasonably good taste prevails, but in such a way that cranks and trolls do not unduly influence what users of such services see or wish to see.

YouTube said the images violated its policies. Paul is one of the platform's biggest stars, with Forbes magazine estimating he earned US$12.5 million previous year. He also advised young viewers on how to win money by gambling.

Paul apologised for posting video which was said to have contained a suspected suicide.

Will the GOP ever stand up to Trump's naked bigotry?
On Saturday morning, Trump took to Twitter to slam the Democrats over the controversy: "The Democrats are all talk and no action". But aside from that word, what the president said was a big, big deal, something that can't be ignored.

YouTube was criticised for moving slowly in response, taking almost two weeks to take action. Even in the case of Logan Paul, the video was taken down by him voluntarily.

Further, YouTube has made a decision to remove Paul from its Google Preferred program, which gives brands the ability to sell ads on the top 5 percent of creators on the platform. But with YouTube Red, a paid subscription service, and YouTube entering into financial deals with content creators, that line is now blurred.

"YouTube manages the largest set of partners of any company in the world", ranging from young people trying to get started "all the way to Disney", Kyncl said.

On the other hand, any strict policing from YouTube over the content uploaded will certainly lead to discontent amongst thousands of prominent content creators.

Besides being removed from two YouTube Red projects, Paul was also pulled from the Google Preferred advertising platform, though Forbes.com reports that he can still expect to make millions this year. YouTube said on Twitter this week that critics were right to be frustrated by its initial lack of response.
